Re: Who is Redszone's #8 prospect?
Rojas bat, if all goes well, is a .725 OPS bat. His slim defensive edge, if he even has one, isn't going to be able to make up the difference between the two's bats. Cozart projects to hit for some power, a decent average and solid OBP. Rojas will be lucky to hit 5 HR in a single season in his career. His entire offensive performance is going to be reliant on him hitting .280+ because he just has no power at all.
You very well may be right. But I would caution against the level of certainty with which you make these judgments. You don't know a whole lot about how these two compare defensively, and Rojas has several years of maturing to do physically. Precipitous judgments re: prospects who are still young often turn out to be wrong.
